Peay Estate Sonoma Coast La Bruma Estate Syrah 2015

$49.40

Tasting Notes: 2015 La Bruma has a very intense graphite and smoke nose with blackberry and black currant fruit lying at the core like a bottomless well. It is quite savory with fennel, rosemary and garlic notes making visions of lamb chops dance in your head. Notably, there is little of the violet, floral quality usually found in this cuveé. The mouth is dark and savory with some bitter chocolate and plum notes overlying a granite and inorganic mineral quality. The wine is not heavy in the least as the alcohol is moderate and the finish bright and energetic due to refreshing acidity. This wine is very compelling right now but will be fantastic with a few more years under its belt. The 2005 La Bruma is just hitting its stride 13 years from vintage and Peay Vineyards would give this wine up to double that life, if any lasts that long.

Vinous 93/00: Peay’s 2015 Syrah Estate La Bruma presents a distinctly earthy, floral profile to play off a core of red/purplish berry fruit. Gracious and lifted in feel, this mid-weight Syrah has quite a bit to offer. Overall, though, the 2015 is fairly restrained for the year.

Food Pairing: Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah.

Description

About: All wines are made from grapes grown on our 53-acre estate vineyard located above a river gorge in the far northwestern corner of the Sonoma Coast, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean at Sea Ranch. We sit in the chilly inversion layer with fog and wind from the Ocean maintaining cool temperatures with plenty of sunlight. We farm organically and maintain our licenses for fish friendly farming and integrated pest management. The health of our vineyard dictates these approaches to farming and making wine. We also run on bio-diesel at the vineyard and solar power at both the vineyard and winery.
